I think I may have found my new calling: Doctor Diver
LOL I'm jk, med all the way
But in all seriousness, I would love to become a certified diver and qualify for my rescue cert and maybe even become a dive instructor sometime down the track. It was never really my intention to go to Thailand and 'find myself' lol tbh, at the root of it, I kinda just went to party. But I really enjoyed the hospital experience and learning about differentials and observing surgeries and I've never been more sure about where I'm headed in life. But I also realised that it's not all black and white. I really do love the outdoors and seeing nature just do it's thing.
When I was diving in Phi Phi, my instructor was telling me how much work actually goes into getting your instructors qualification. How you need to learn about the human anatomy and the body's physiological responses to the changes in sea level and pressures. They're things that I've touched on before, in second year and it was the stuff I loved to learn! I can relate so much of what I'm being taught to diving and I think I'd love to become an instructor one day. Or to even be simply certified. Having dived previously, I was able to stray away-ish from the instructor while he focused on those who hadn't previously dove and the whole time I kept thinking that it was so freeing and being able to see everything and look after myself at the same time was just absolutely satisfying!!
I want to get certified!
Anyway, a friend of mine was actually telling me that there are dive instructors who are doctors and they're in demand and good to have around in the water because things do go wrong on occasion and they'd be properly qualified to help, lol.
I may be completely wrong, but the idea of it sounds amazing.
I love diving so much
Cannot wait to do it all over the world!!
I wanna get certified
